Motorcycle Accident Lawyer Have you or a loved one suffered severe injuries in a motorcycle accident due to someone else's negligence? If so, you may have a case to file a personal injury lawsuit. Motorcyclists are especially vulnerable when driving on the road, and crashes can cause injuries far worse than those in covered vehicles. While motorcycle riders have the exact same rights as other drivers, they are far too often ignored.

At the Paulsen Law Group, our experienced Dunedin attorneys will fight to fully protect your rights. Our goal is to do everything in our power so that you can receive the maximum amount of compensation you are legally entitled to, from current and future medical bills to lost wages.

How Florida’s No-Fault Liability Applies to Motorcycle Crashes

Florida is what is known as a no-fault state; which means if you are injured in a car accident, regardless of who is at fault you must first turn to your own insurance coverage to seek compensation for your injuries and other damages. No-fault liability means you cannot hold the other party liable for your injuries unless you are able to show you were permanently injured. Only in those circumstances are motorists able to file a lawsuit against the liable party. Insured Motorists are compensated through their own insurance coverage under what is known as personal injury protection (PIP). This coverage includes medical bills and lost wages regardless of who is at fault for the accident.

PIP laws do not apply to motorcyclists meaning after an accident, motorcyclists do not need to show evidence the accident resulted in permanent injuries to file a claim for pain and suffering.

What Are the Most Common Types of Injuries?

By their very nature, motorcyclists are placed at a greater risk than an auto driver, as there is little outer protection. These accidents can then lead to catastrophic injuries. The figures only seem to increase, as there is a reported rise in the number of reported motorcycle injuries that include brain injury, spinal cord injury, and even paralysis.

Other types of motorcycle injuries include:

  • Eye injuries
  • Facial injuries
  • Severe burns
  • Road rash
  • Broken bones and fractures
  • Lacerations
  • Scarring
  • Disfigurement
